I always love vintage photos of kids. They generally make much more natural (i.e., less guarded) subjects than do adults.

 Halloween party, possibly Children's Hospital
 Kiddies in wading pool
 Kids eating
 Kids in Boston Common Frog Pond, 1940s
 Kids sledding on underwater ice in Charlestown, 1921
 Little boy and collie
 Little girl with umbrella
[these captions sure are prosaic, aren't they?]
 New sprinkling device used by the city of Boston for the kids on hot days, 1921
 Pie eating contest
Two children with dog
